Torq Conectiv—including the revolutionary Torq DJ software and Conectiv bus-powered 4 x 4 USB interface—is the breakthrough hardware/software system designed for DJs who perform and produce tracks with a laptop.
M Audio Torq Conectiv delivers high-fidelity audio, all the right kinds of I/O (including dual phono preamps), and the ability to cue, beat-match and mix digital files with ease. Use it as a completely digital solution or process your vinyl and CDs on the fly through the built-in effects.
You can also create a hybrid digital/vinyl DJ rig with specially encoded Torq Control CDs and Torq Control Vinyl disks. Torq supports popular file formats such as MP3, WAV, WMA and AAC files and is configured to automatically work with Conectiv right out of the box. And unlike most digital DJ systems, the Conectiv interface works with other third-party software as well.
M Audio Torq Conectiv USB DJ Interface Features:
Start Spinning Tonight
Working with DJ software used to require going through a painstaking process of set-up and prep work before you could even play a track. That all changed with the introduction of Torq. Designed for both Mac and PC, the program is engineered to work the first time you load the software. Just fire up Torq, connect your compatible M Audio interface, and the program takes care of the rest.
Get It in the Mix—All of It
Torq allows you to cue, beat-match and mix a wide variety of digital audio file formats, including MP3, AIFF, WAV, WMA and AAC. The program organizes all of your digital files into an easily searchable database, enabling you to pull up the perfect track or change up your set in an instant. You can even access your entire iTunes library through Torq, so you can truly have all of your music at your fingertips.
Wheels of Virtual Steel
Torq organizes everything you need to DJ into a single, easy-to-use workspace. The program has two virtual decks where you can load, cue and play back digital files—it will even automatically beat-match the files the instant you load them. And just like a traditional DJ setup, Torq includes an integrated two-channel mixer with three-band EQs, level controls, headphone cueing and a crossfader. But unlike hardware, Torq supports the vast world of third-party VST effects plug-ins and allows you to create recallable snapshots of your favorite EQ, effect and mixer settings
Live Remix Machine
With Torq, you’re never limited to just basic beat-matching and crossfading between tracks. With a 16-cell, tempo-synced sampler, easy looping capabilities and multiple cue points, you can chop up a song—on the fly—and re-order, remix and extend any section you want, all while staying perfectly in time. With the option of adding multiple effects, you can turn a song into a completely original piece of music and even record it on the spot with the integrated performance recorder. And for the DAW-savvy DJ, you can route the output of Torq to any ReWire-compatible host application like Ableton Live and share synchronization information between the programs.
Torq can be controlled via keyboard, MIDI controller—like the Oxygen 8 v2 or Axiom 25—or special control vinyl/CDs. So if you’re eager to embrace the world of computer-based music, but not ready to give up the feel of your favorite turntable or CD player, you’re in luck. With a compatible audio interface like the M-Audio Conectiv, and one or more control vinyl/CDs, you can control digital files loaded in Torq with a traditional DJ setup. Torq includes multiple operating modes that can make playback behave like a traditional turntable or a CD player—and there is even a hybrid mode that blends the strengths of both vinyl and CD-style control.
SynchroScience—Designed for Real-time Performance
M Audio's new SynchroScience product development group is all about providing you with the tools you need —as evidenced by the portable and powerful interface. With two pairs of stereo inputs and outputs, easy USB connectivity and included Torq software, this interface can turn any compatible Mac or PC into a powerful rig. The two large knobs allow you to seamlessly mix between the incoming audio from a turntable or CD player with the output of a connected Mac or PC. It also includes standard DJ cueing capabilities, so you can listen to any track in your headphones before sending it out to the house system.
Download All Day, Party All Night
The included Torq DJ software is a dual-platform application that allows you to mix, beat-match and cue a variety of digital audio file formats, including MP3, AIFF, WAV, WMA and AAC. The first time you boot up the software, it automatically configures itself to work with Conectiv. Furthermore, the software itself can be controlled via mouse, keyboard, MIDI controller or control vinyl/CDs. And unlike traditional DJ set-ups where you're forced to carry around heavy crates of records or CDs, Torq organizes all of your digital files into a quickly searchable database on a compact, convenient hard disk—it can even interface directly with your iTunes library for truly effortless setup. And if that's not enough, Torq supports third-party VST effect plug-ins and includes both a dedicated 16-cell sampler and performance recorder.
The Ultimate DJ Effects Unit
For the DJ who chooses to work with vinyl or CDs, Conectiv can turn a laptop into the most versatile effects unit ever conceived. By routing the output of a connected turntable or CD player into a program like Torq or Ableton Live, you can process your tracks with tons of plug-in effects. Imagine the possibilities of stacking multiple distortion, EQ, reverb, chorus or bit reduction effects and using the knobs to blend the dry and processed signals. And by using industry-standard CoreAudio and ASIO drivers, it delivers low-latency operation on both Mac and PC.
Are you eager to embrace the world of computer-based DJing, but not ready to give up the feel of your favorite turntable or CD player? Not a problem.. Simply break out a pair of control vinyl discs or CDs, and spin digital files loaded in Torq using a traditional DJ setup. And unlike most—more expensive—digital vinyl systems, Conectiv is also compatible with other third-party DJ and DAW applications—you can even use it as an audio interface.
Crank It All the Way
While laptop systems have long offered conveniences like portability, unique effects, world-class editing options and instant access to downloadable music, many of these devices don't deliver the same output volume as traditional DJ products. This M Audio interface changes all of that. With a maximum output level of +10dBV, Conectiv gives you more volume than you need and can go to toe-to-toe with any DJ product on the market.
M-Audio interfaces are known for their recording quality and Conectiv is no exception. With switchable RCA phono/line level inputs and ¼” mic input, you can easily record a wide variety of sources with most DAW software titles, including Ableton Live, Logic, Cubase, Digital Performer and more.
